Lot #173. Bruno Clavelier Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Cras Vieilles Vignes 2011

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92-93 JG.
"Les Cras is one of the finest premier crus in Nuits St. Georges, located up on the slope right above Murgers and Boudots, and Monsieur Clavelier’s parcel is all in old vines, with one third of the vines eighty years of age and the remainder fully seventy years old! These old vines produce very small berries each year, which accounts for the intensity and beautiful balance of the wine in the 2011 vintage. The classy bouquet is very Murgers-like this year, offering up scents of black plums, black cherries, woodsmoke, game, dark soil tones, espresso and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and transparent, with a fine core of fruit, good acidity, and excellent length and grip on the ripely tannic finish. This is a very elegant bottle of young Nuits St. Georges in 2011." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #45, Jun 2013
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $120
